2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Publix Supermarkets - 12 oz bottle. Dark golden pour, white head with slight lacing. Somewhat of a spicy aroma with hints of grain and mint. Flavor has some spicy notes as well with some cinnamon (odd), grains of paradise, some bland but solid graininess, and a hint of pepper. Crisp, clean mouthfeel, Overall, a decent entry form Leiny’s - a solid standby from the big three (even through they really are part of them).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a light amber body with small to no head. Aroma is sweet malt with some hop. Taste is same, refreshing, and easy to drink, but with decent flavor.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a light amber color with a yellow gold head that has a noisy but short life span. Nose is sweet malt, soap. Flavor is also soapy and is fairly well hopped with some caramel, spice, corn, and some funkiness. Metallic. Feel is thin but has some hoppy prickliness. I used to like everything this brew put out but they are even being surpassed by Michelob.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The first reviews encouraged me. I sampled a pint at Old Chicago in Green Bay. I’m a Wisconsin native and would love to promote this beer. But there was something missing with this one. Fairly flat taste and carbonation. Not much of a bite, not much sweetness. A can of PBR would fulfill me as much as this one, There just isn’t much there,

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft sample at the Free the Hops 2009 Blastoff Party. Golden in the glass with a white head that had a thin layer lasting. Skunked aroma with a backing of wheat and farmyard. The flavor found wheat and hints of nut. Light body with a light malt and nut aftertaste.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pretty basic light amber orange with a finger of puffy off white head. Some metallic malt aroma and grassy hops with a sneaking hint of caramel. Taste is more pale malts, bits of caramel and standard lager like grassy hops.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty blah. nutty aroma, and a lot of walnut in the flavor as well. That’s probably the only unique thing about this beer. Finishes just a bit bitter.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
beer pours more like a pale lager color than amber. 2 inch head crushes in an instant. Smells like funky malt and dirty sock. Tastes like ass. metallic aftertaste. Forgettable palte. pass on this one. This has got to be the sludge leftover in the brew kettles from when they brewed coors original that they just added water to/

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. Clear, orange-amber with a quarter-inch of lasting foam. Aroma of rubber, grass and light honey. Flavor is unfortunately the same on the front, but is somewhat redeemed by some light toasted nut on the finish. Light-medium body is dryish and tingly.
